update


I just thought I would give you an update on my log cabin fall quilt.
I'm using every free minute to sew stripes into blocks.

sewing log cabin blocks

Each block has a brown, orange and red diagonal on one side and on the opposite
 a green and blue green side.  So far I've managed to sew 16 blocks.
Still 20 blocks to go!

blocks for fall quilt

The other day I saw a lovely quilt in a hoop right here
And you know how things are..seeing a quilt in a hoop works sooooooo... contagious.
I made this quilt using fabric from moda. The fabric is called 'recess', I used a 5" squares charm pack. I added orange/ white checkers and red/ white polkadot fabric. For the back I used polkadot also.
Quilting in a hoop...nothing can beat that!

red, orange and recess fabrics

What do you think of these two for an audience?

my audience?
Aren't these two cute ?
Happy stitching!

I like the way my eye travels over your log cabin quilt, exploring the complexities of the patterns and colors. It is a very lively design. Beth

You are so right about seeing a quilt in a hoop. And wow.. your stitches are perfect. Beautiful image!

I like your log cabin quilt too.. it has a very "Material Obsession" feel to it.. LOVE that look.

Did you make those two little helpers? Adorable.

Hello Corry,
I just happened upon your blog. It is very nice and I will be visiting often. I love your quilts, they're beautiful.
I am Dutch as well except I live in the U.S. My parents immigrated here before I was born and all my relatives are still in Holland.
I am also a quilter for 11 years now.
I'm glad to see that there are quilters in the Netherlands.

blessings,

Christa

You are so talented ! And I'd love to know what those two mice are talking about !

Duyvken said...

I love hand stitching my quilts, It think that's why I am so slow with my projects but I so love the finished look.

Shari said...

Oh, how I love that Recess quilt. Wonderful colors and your stitches look so good! I am a big fan of all the "American Jane" Moda fabric. Both of these quilts are just lovely!!
